Verse

AmSome time ago in the city run solely on stEeam The poEwer plant workers would rise and stick to routAmine BrDmeakin' their backs 'til their work shirts were dirty and bAmrown As yEear after year, they'd work for the good of the tAmown As pAmarts would get old, these men would make the repairs E ChaEnging out axles and belts with meticulous cAmare WDmorking their hands to the bone and slaving aAmway They'd prEess on with diligence and as they strained you could hEear them say,

Chorus

"With our blooDmd, sweat, and tears And the gAmrinding of gears We shall slEave to keep our beautiful city alAmive! "Yes, with blDmood, sweat, and tears And the pasAmsing of years We'll expEend ourselves so our fair people may thrAmive!" One afternoon Frederick Worthington clocked into work He went to his station not knowing the danger that lurked He pulled on the lever to start up the massive machine But deep in the workings was something he had not foreseen The pistons were pumping as pressure began to accrue And suddenly one of the tanks had to give, and it blew Frederick was knocked back into an assortment of gears And there in an instant he came to an end with his GREATEST FEAR! And with blood, sweat, and tears And the grinding of gears This disaster happened in front of our terrified eyes Yes, with blood, sweat, and tears In his premature years Frederick met his unfortunate, wholly untimely demise So with blood, sweat, and tears We must face what we fear And although it's tragic, and everyone's sad that he's gone With our blood, sweat, and tears We return to our gears This city still needs us to work, so we must carry on With our blood, sweat, and tears And the grinding of gears We shall slave to keep our beautiful city alive! Yes, with blood, sweat, and tears And the passing of years We'll expend ourselves so our fair people may thrive! 03 - Loverboy

Verse

VDmerdigris Patina was a pCeaceful little town The hBome of Wilbur Redpot, finest cAoppersmith around He was fDmamous for his products, as they sCold extremely well CompBetitors were livid as their buAsiness income fell Now, AlDmexander Copperplate, a mCan from out of town, DeclBared his gang was coming soon to sAhoot poor Wilbur down The tDmown was in a panic, they knew sComething should be done And they Bhad till moArning sDmun!

Chorus

So sDmaddle up your steam-bike and pBut your goggles on We've gFot to be prepared or else we'll Aall be dead by dawn CDmopperplate is coming, and his Beyes are seeing red, And he's Bafter WiAlbur's Dmhead! The townsfolk got together and they figured out a plan They knew they'd have to do their best to save their fellow man And, though they had no weapons, they all had a lot of brains: They'd build machines to leave their villain in a world of pain! So Wilbur brought the copper, old Frank supplied the steel; Bob and Sue had extra chains, and Tommy brought the wheels; They knew they'd have a chance with these, they knew they'd win the fight, And they worked all through the night! So saddle up your steam-bike and put your goggles on We've got to be prepared or else we'll all be dead by dawn Copperplate is coming and his eyes are seeing red, And he's after Wilbur's head!

Verse iii

Well CoDmpperplate arrived at dawn, he staCyed true to his word But the tBown was deathly silent, not a sAoul was to be heard He yelled out, "Redpot! Come on out, and fight me like a man!" And that was when the churning and the chugging sounds began An army of the townsfolk soon poured out into the street Each of them on steam-bikes, and they all were packing heat They had his men surrounded, there was fear on every face And they pBut them Ain their plDace!

Chorus

PoDmwer up your steam-bike, let's shoBw 'em who's in charge We've gFot our ropes and grappling hooks and weAapons to discharge CoDmpperplate is panicked and his fBace is turning white And we're gBonna wAin this fDmight! That's right! Let's go! Now power down your steam-bike, we finally took 'em down We strung 'em up and licked 'em good and ran them out of town Verdigris Patina is a peaceful town once more And we won the Copper War! Hyah! 05 - Aimee

Down below the ocean It's waiting in the dark When there's stormy weather it will tear your ship apart Its tentacles are massive Its teeth are made of steel You may call it myth, but I assure you that it's real!

A body made of metal But with a living brain Survivors who have told of it have all been called insane But many ships have vanished They've gone without a word Perhaps the stories that these sailors tell aren't that absurd! So if you sail the ocean Stay always on your guard Or you may wind up lifeless when that monster hits you hard He'll wrap himself around you You'll wish that you weren't born So if this beast attacks you please don't say that you weren't warned! When the waves come rolling in, and lightning fills the sky, All the sailors know that the leviathan is nigh! If he grabs onto your boat, he'll never let you go-- Soon you'll join a thousand ships he's sent to the depths below! When the waves come rolling in, and lightning fills the sky, All the sailors know that the leviathan is nigh!

I onAce knew a girl with a hDeart of gold Two lEegs of copper and aArms of chrome The prAettiest girl I eDver knew I Eloved each rivet, bAolt and screw Shiny locks of wire hair And copper plating everywhere There was no doubt she had to be The one and only girl for me

Chorus

BEut she was the daughter of a mAean old man, An inEventor who just wouldn't let her gAo And tEhough his creation had grown fAond of me, His conDtinual responses told me Eno So we made a plan to elope that day We packed our kisses to the far away I went to her window late that night And she was ready for our flight I was happy as I could be When she wrapped her tiny metal arms round me And with a propeller sticking from her head We switched it on and fled! But her father was a crazy man And he didn't want to let us get away He was able to pull us from the sky that night With a powerful magnetic ray So he took my girl from me And shunned me for eternity He locked her up inside a room As cold and awful as a tomb And though I am consumed with rage I know that man is up in age And soon as he is finally dead Then she and I will wed!

At approximately 2:05 PM this afternoon, an English clockmaker by the name of Hamilton revealed to the world a new kind of clock. This sick, twisted design displays the time digitally on a small backlit screen and is run entirely on electricity. Hamilton predicts that this new abomination is the way of the future, and believes that someday these hideous creations of his will be in every home in the world. It is with deep regret that we announce to you, dear listeners, that the cog is dead. We repeat: The cog is dead." 11 – The Death Of The Cog

Verse

CmOh, Mr. Hamilton, whFmat have you done? CmLook at this terrible trGend you've begun! FmYou make me sick, you cCmontemptible dog, I blame yGou for the death of the Cmcog! Clocks used to be such magnificent things Beautiful sprockets and dazzling springs But you gave the people your digital beast And in turn now all gears are deceased

ClGockwork would tick and would brCming me much joy BuFmt, with your advent, there's noCm need to wind – EGverything charming has beeCmn left behind! Oh, Mr. Hamilton, you dirty fiend Your modern timepiece is cruel and obscene! I was a lover of gears great and small They all were my friends and you've murdered them all! Aaaahhh... How could a person commit such a crime - To murder immaculate keepers of time? Why should a person so foul get away? Hamilton, you're gonna pay! So, Mr. Hamilton, just watch your back Hide all those digital clocks on your rack They'll soon end up smashed to bits in a bog Because you, you, you, you, YOU Caused the DEATH OF THE COG!

Verse

CIt was spring of 189F0 Thomas LiAmvingston had built a new mGachine CAnd he planned to see the Fworld Flying eAmverywhere to places yet unsGeen When the dAmay to set sail finally arrived He hFugged his son and he kissed his wife And sCet off on the journey through the skGy And the fAmirst few months went just as planned TheFy were leaving Rome for Amsterdam When a pirate vCessel caught them by surpriGse

Pre-chorus

Well, pAmanic broke out EOn that ship CFannons fired and bCullets ripped Though TAmhomas stood firm EIn the fight, He Ffeared he'd have to wGrite:

Chorus

C"Dear Michelle, I won't be coEming home I'm driAmfting out across the clouds InFto the great unknown C"There's no way I'll ever Emake it back It's vAmast out here, and I have veered So Fvery far off track "Please look after Jim And take good care of him Oh, Michelle, I know you will raise him well "I wish I could return But now you'll have to learn To carry on when your family man is gone" As the pirates waged their war Thomas tried to fight and counter their attacks But the fiends had them outnumbered And a gunman shot his first mate in the back Well they picked off his men, one by one There was nothing they could do, and there was nowhere to run And it wouldn't be long 'til the scoundrels shot them all Then with one final blast that shook the ship Thomas Livingston's vessel took a critical hit And down his mighty craft began to fall And Thomas then thought of his miss He couldn't let her know he went down like this He wrote a letter to Michelle, As down his airship fell: "Dear Michelle, I won't be coming home I'm drifting out across the clouds Into the great unknown "There's no way I'll ever make it back It's vast out here, and I have veered So very far off track "Please look after Jim And take good care of him Oh Michelle, I know you will raise him well "I wish I could return But now you'll have to learn To carry on when your family man is gone "Please look after Jim And take good care of him Oh Michelle, I know you will raise him well "I wish I could return But now you'll have to learn To carry on when your family man is gone" 14 - Steam Powered Stories (Outro) "And thus concludes another week's episode.
